Peacock Deco Mesh Wreath

A friend of mine asked me to make her a wreath
that would work in between holidays. And here's
what I came up with:
 
 Materials:
turquoise deco mesh (21" width) 
wire wreath
floral wire
peacock plumes
wooden letter
paint and glitter paint
glue gun
fishing line
 
I attached the deco mesh to the wreath form using floral
wire.  I painted the wooden letter black, then added a layer
of gold glitter. It was a little too much gold, so I did another thin
layer of black paint over the gold, but enough gold still shows through
to shimmer in the light. The peacock feathers and the letter were
attached the deco mesh with hot glue. But the letter was still a
little bit floppy, so I attached it to the deco mesh in a couple
places with fishing line.

I love how it turned out! I may just have to make one for myself now :)
